Peter Gulácsi: "That's exactly how we want to play football!"

All the reaction from the win against FC Augsburg | Ralph Hasenhüttl, Willi Orban, Dayot Upamecano and Péter Gulácsi share their thoughts post match.

Ralph Hasenhüttl:

"We found our way into the game well, despite the fact that we had two players missing. In the first half we didn't have much possession, but it was much better in the second half. The bottom lines is that we put on a very good tactical performance.

It's very good for the team that we didn't concede again. The key to our success was that we were compact in defence. Despite that, it won't be easy to keep a clean sheet in Naples next week."

Willi Orban:

"We didn't play well against them earlier in the season so we had a point to prove. We asked a lot of ourselves and played with more tactical flexibility. It's very important that we won today.

The Europa League match in Naples is a completely different kettle of fish! We back ourselves to keep a clean sheet there and are looking forward to it. We cannot hide. We can take a lot from those two matches."

 Dayot Upamecano:

"It was a very good game for the team and for me. The victory is very important for me and need to keep looking ahead.

I have worked on my game and that has paid off. I dedicate the goal to my mum. She told me before the game that I would score."

Péter Gulácsi:

"We've been a lot more compact since the winter break. It's very important that we kept clean sheets in our last two games. That's exactly how we want to play.

Against Napoli it will be completely different. But we go into the match with lots of confidence. We need to get a result that will give us the best possible chance of going into the second leg. We stand strong at the back and defend well, then we have a good chance of winning any game."
